Having already been redesigned to look “less upscale” and eliminate its garage, the proposed redevelopment of the “One $ Store” parcel on the southwest corner of Mission and 17th Streets was subsequently challenged by the Mission Economic Development Agency (MEDA) for the potential loss of a “low-price-point community-serving retail” establishment and the number of condos within the development to be offered at below market rates.
In response, the project team asked the operator of the One $ Store to consider returning to the future retail space, with a below market (but above current) rent, but the operator declined. Goodwill, however, has been approached by the project team and is currently “expected” to sign a lease for the future space.
At the same time, while the total number of condos to rise above the retail space has been reduced from twenty-nine (29) to twenty-seven (27), the code compliant number of units to be offered at below market rates (12 percent) remains at three (3).
And with all that in mind, San Francisco’s Planning Department is recommending that the Planning Commission reject MEDA’s formal challenge of the project and approve the development of 2100 Mission Street as proposed next week.
